INTRODUCTION. 



PECULIAR FEATURES OF THE WORK. 

A VAXT has long been felt, in every community, for a cheap Vocabulary 
of Geographical and Personal Names, as a book of reference for pronuncia' 
tion, mainly, bat secondarily as a brief guide to the leading items of informa- 
tion connected with those names. This want has been experienced, perhaps 
often unconsciously, by pupils in our common schools, by the poorer portion of 
students in high schools and colleges, and by the mass of newspaper readers 
who invest very little money in books. The thorough student, and the general 
reader who has plenty of means with which to supply every convenience, can 
obtain the information desired in such works as " Lippincoit's Gazetteer," 
" Appleton's Ringraphical Encyclopedia," etc.; but they are too expensive for 
the classes mentioned, and in many cases too voluminous to be convenient. 

In regard to personal names, so far as the publishers are aware, there has 
never before been an attempt made to give their pronunciation in an extended 
list. [For remarks on the importance of calling men by their right names, 
see pages 128 9.] 

But there is another feature of the work here presented, which, in the minds 
of the publishers and of the many school teachers and friends of education who 
have examined the subject, is of more value than either of the considerations 
above mentioned, and demands more than a passing notice. The methods of 
representing pronunciation in the ordinary dictionaries and gazetteers, either 
by marked letters or by figures in connection with them, is so imperfect and 
Unsatisfactory as to be a constant source of annoyance to all who are necessi- 
tated to use them. That the reader may understand the full merits of the 
system of notation employed in this book, we propose to notice briefly some of 
the circumstances that call for its introduction. 

The first principle of alphabetic writing or printing was the representation 
of each sound by a simple character or letter, so that these letters or elemental 
parts, when combined, would be the counterpart of the spoken word a picture 
of the word itself. Such was the Sanscrit, and such, it is evident to every 
intelligent mind, should be the principle of all alphabetic writing, for thus 
the acquisition of written or printed language would be as easy cs that of 



iv INTRODUCTION. 

spoken, and there would bo no necessity for Pronouncing Dictionaries and 
Gazetteers, while a disregard of this principle renders the represented language, 
if not hieroglyphical, at least ideagraphic ; that is, the written or printed word 
represents an idea, and can not, as a general thing, be considered as repre- 
senting the sounds of a spoken word. For example, take the word ccugh, and 
what relation does either of the. letters bear to the three sounds heard, as indi- 
cated by the Pronouncing Dictionary, Icoff C can not definitely represent k, 
because in cent it is supposed to stand for , iu suffice for 2, in vicious for *A, 
etc.; and how can o be a representative of the vowel sound in cough, when it 
bus such different sounds in no, son, woman, women, etc.; and u is not any bet- 
ter a representative of this sound, and the two uncertainties together can not 
make the matter more clear, especially when we see them called so differently 
in count, cousin, pour, tour; while g is a poor representative of /, and h is no 
better, and the two together are no improvement, when we view their varying 
sounds in lough, ghost, and want of sound in dough and weigh. Any other 
word, almost, would answer just as well to show the utter deficiency of English 
"orthography to represent the spoken words of the language. There are only 
60 words, in the 90,000 used by English speakers, whose spellings are in accord- 
ance with the true principle of alphabetic writing.* 

Primarily, then, an insurmountable difficulty in the way of accurately rep- 
resenting by means of the Roman alphabet any words whatever, is, in its 
consisting of but twenty-three representative letters, while the spoken language 
consists of upwards of forty distinct sounds! And secondarily, even were there 
a uniformity in the notation used by the different authorities in supplying the 
deficiency caused by employing the Romanic seini -alphabet, it is still open to 
the charge of complexity and inaccuracy, and therefore unfit to be used in 
teaching children a correct pronunciation. 

There are other serious objections to our present orthography as it regards 
teaching a correct pronunciation, only one of which we shall mention in this 
connection, and which has a bearing on the remarks above. It is that it gives 
rise to a slip-shod manner of pronunciation or enunciation. Who that has 
paid the least attention to the pronunciation of the middle and upper classes, 
as well as that of public speakers, has not noticed the great want of care, the 
inaccuracies and diversities prevalent, and particularly how utterly regardless 
of all rules and taste they are iu the enunciation of unaccented syllables? The 
words fall from their lips robbed of all their beauty and interest shapeless and 
repulsive to the educated ear. The fault with the better educated class of 
people is chargeable, to a great extent, to themselves, but with those less for- 
tunate there can be no such plea, and the present English or Johnsonian 
orthography, absurd as it is in structure, becomes responsible here. Good 
pronunciation is in giving the wlwle word, with all its parts perfect; every 
unaccented syllable slumld be enunciated clearly and distinctly nut with 
emphasis but with distinctness. Speakers who are thus accurate are seldom 
found, nevertheless there are such, and it is probable that when phonology

shall have been generally taught the number will be increased; nay, more, 
good speech will come to be "a common heritage." 

A word further in reference to elemental speech. "It is rare," says Mr. A. 
J. Ellis, whose authority is unquestioned on this subject, " to meet with a 
single elemental work which contains even a tolerably correct account of this 
important subject, and even scholars and professed teachers of pronunciation 
and elocution are generally very ignorant of the latter. Nay, more, the very 
teachers and best investigators of the subject are at variance. Let any one 
peruse the works of the greatest authorities we possess, those of Amman, Jo- 
hannes Miiller, Willis, Wheatstone, Lepsius, Max. Miiller, Latham, etc., and 
he will see differences on fundamental points which are irreconcilable. If ho 
turn to works of minor pretence, as Bell, Smart, Walker, Worcester, and the 
numerous works on elocution, he will find confusion partly arising from igno- 
rance, and partly from a partial view c the subject. While in common gram- 
mars, and in the common treatises of travelers, and Pronouncing Vocabularies 
and Dictionaries, he will find that one person has copied from another without 
understanding him, till words are repeated and sense entirely lost."* So long 
as we have for guides the clumsy system of notation of Webster, the "obscure" 
vowel sounds of Worcester, and the common imperfect works on phonology, we 
may expect no better results. The remedy clearly is the general introduction, 
into all our primary schools, of works based upon, a strictly pJumetic principle t 
and in time there will be a total revolution and a harmony in pronunciation. 

By the application, then, of the phonetic principle, that every distinct ele- 
ment in speech shall have its distinct symbolic exponent, to the representation 
of the pronunciation of geographical words, we have a work that at once com- 
bines the three things desirable, simplicity, accuracy, and reliability. 

It may be urged in opposition, that the introduction of this without being 
accompanied or preceded by primary works will prove inexpedient, and, even- 
tually, a failure. We reply that if this were the first work of the kind offered 
to the public there might be some ground for apprehension, but phonotypy is a 
fixed fact; and its promulgation for several years past, and its introduction 
into primary schools in different parts of the country as a means of teaching to 
read romanically, in the common print, and the generally increasing demand for 
teachers qualified to teach it, have wrought a complete change in our system 
of primary instruction, and stamp phonetics as an indispensable adjunct in 
teaching to read, and the knowledge of it a prerequisite to a qualified teacher. 
When, previous to the introduction of phonetics, did we hear of the first prin- 
ciples of language, the elemental sounds, being taught in schools? Or where 
were the teachers who were well acquainted with them? Even now, in many 
sections of the West and South, instructors as well as pupils are greatly 
deficient in this respect ; but the light of the phonetic principle is opening 
their eyes ; and whether it reach them directly through the phonotypic alpha- 
bet or by means of Charts of the Elementary sounds, newly arranged spelling 
books and readers, or some other channel, it matters not, they will soon all ba

theoretical phoneticians, and will not object to a philosophical alphabet for the 
representation of pronunciation in Dictionaries, Vocabularies, etc., if for no 
other purpose. 

In regard to the availability of the Phonetic alphabet for teaching children 
to read the common spelling in shorter time and in a better manner, than by 
the ordinary method, the render is referred to the Primer and Headers advertized 
at the close of this work, or for the philosophy of the fact, to the Introduction 
to the Phonetic Dictionary, by the same publishers. 

The phonetic alphabet will be found on page 12, facing the first page of tho 
Vocabulary, where, by examining the key W'jrds the sounds of the new letters 
will be readily learned, tho old letters having the sounds they usually repre- 
sent in the old spelling, which are also designated. 



PRONUNCIATION OF FOREIGN NAMES. 

In accordance with the established custom of the best Geographers, we have 
given the pronunciation of the names of cities, towns, rivers, etc., as nearly as 
English mouths can speak them, as they are pronounced by the best educated 
people of tho countries in which they are situated. To do this it has frequently 
been necessary to give two pronunciations, as the same printed word is often 
spoken differently in different countries: as, LIMA, Ls-mq, a province in Peru, 
hut Li-ma, towns in the United States; PARIS, Py-re, a city in France, but 
I'&r-it, towns in this country. 

In carrying out this plan we have been compelled to represent a few sounds 
not provided for in the English Phonetic Alphabet, because not heard in tho 
English language. The most frequent is that of the German and Scotch cA 
and German g at the end of a syllable, which represent the same sound, namely, 
a strongly aspirated h, which we indicate by using the italic of that letter. 
Thus, METTERXICH, Me't-er-niA; LOCHABEK, LoA-^-ber; HAMBURG, Hojm-burA. 

Next is the trilled r, which in French, German, and indeed most of the Eu- 
ropean languages, is often sounded more roughly, even, than in such English 
words as crash, terror, etc., which we indicate by the italic r. Thus, LIERRJE, 
Lt-^r; PKRNAU, I'^t-nv. 

The Welsh I, too, we represent by the italic of that letter, which may be 
called the whisper of the English vocal /, an approximation to which the reader 
may make by sounding hi. Thus, LLANKLLY, Lan-el-t. 

Lastly, is the sign of the French orinasal vowels, or, as some phoneticians 
regard it, the whispered g. It can only be produced by sounding some vowel 
through the nose and mouth at the same time, to do which is indicated by 
affixing the letter n; thus, MONT BLANC, Mum Bloii. 

The French u or eu being very difficult to produce by English mouths, we 
have not attempted to represent it accurately, but give the nearest English 
approximation, namely /; as the vowel in sir, or earth, which is at least as near 
the proper sound aa "u in tub or fur," which Baldwin gives.

GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF PRONUNCIATION OF 
THE LEADING EUROPEAN LANGUAGES. 

As a guide to the pronunciation of such unimportant names, or names that 
may hereafter come into sudden notoriety, as are not to be found in this 
book, we give the following rules, which are more specific, by far, than can be 
found in any ordinary dictionary. The letters in parentheses, in the Phonetic 
alphabet, have the sounds referred to immediately preceding. 
A. Always has the sound of a in the English word arm, (q) in modern Greek, 
Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portugese, Spanish, Swedish and usually Welsh. 
In German it generally has the above sound, but when followed by h it fre- 
>- qaently has the sound of a, in all, (e). 

In Danish, in addition to the above, it sometimes has the sound of a inol,(a). 
In French, its first sound is like a, in arm, (q); its second like the vowel in 

at, (a), with a circumflex, a, it is sounded very nearly like a, in all (e). 
In Dutch, it is similar to the French. 

In Hungarian, it is like o in not, (o); with an accent, a, like a, in arm, (q). 
E. In Danish is sounded like i in ill, (i), at the end of an acoented syllable; 

in other situations like e in ell, (e), or like ea, in earth, (e). 
The Norwegian is similar to the Danish. 

In French, marked thus, e, it is sounded like a in ale, (a); thus, e, like in 
pear, or ai in air, (a,); thus, e, like e in very, (e), and unmarked, like u 
in up, (u.) 

In Dutch and Flemish, similar to the French. 
In German, when long, it is like a in ale (a); it is, however, more frequently 

short like e in met, (e), and sometimes like ea in earth, (e). 
Swedish, the same as in German. 
In Greek, (modern,) it has the sound of a in ale, (a). 
In Hungarian, like e in met, (e): with an accent, e, more like * in sir, ($ ). 
In Italian it has two sounds, like a in ale, (a), and like e in ell. 
In Polish, without an accent, like e in ell, (e); with an accent, e, like a in 

ale, (a). 

In Portugese and Spanish, it is like a in ale, (a). 
In Welsh, like e in met, (e); when circumflexed, e, like ai in air, (^). 
7. In Portugese, Spanish and Polish is sounded like ee in eel, (e). 
In Danish, Dutch, Flemish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, 
Norwegian, Swedish and Welsh, it has two sounds; first, as in eel, (e), 
second as in ill, (i.) 
0. In Danish, Greek, Hungarian, Norwegian, Portugese and Spanish, is 

sounded as in English. 
In French, Dutch, Flemish, German, Italian and Welsh, it has two sounds; 

first, as o in note, (o), and second, as o in r<ib, (o). 

In Polish, unaccented, like o in note, (o), with an accent, like 00 in good, (a). 
In Swedish, at the end of a syllable, it is like oo in/oal, (m); otherwise like 
o in not, (o.) 



viii INTRODUCTION. 

U. In Danish, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portugese and Span- 
ish, is sounded like oo in fool, (o>). 

The French sound of u is not heard in English. It seems to be an attempt 
to pronounce ee and oo at the same time. We have represented it in this 
work by the phonetic e, which is, perhaps, the nearest approximation to 
the true sound English mouths can make, without much vocal teaching. 
Greek nnd Dutch arc similar to the French. 

In German, has two sounds, long likc<v> in fool, (to), short like uinfull, (ta). 
In Swedish we hare represented u by the phonetic o>, though this is not tho 

exact sound. 

In Wel.-h, the sound of is like i in ill, (i), circumflexed, f as ee in eel, (e). 
T. In Danish and Swedish, is like the French , (e). 
In Dutch and Flemish, like long i in English, ( j ) in iff. 
In French, German, Hungarian, (when a vowel) Portugese and Spanish, like 

ee in eel, (e). 
In Greek, when a consonant and before a vowel or a liquid sound, is like tho 

English v; otherwise like/. 
In Polish, like i in ill. 
In Welsh, in a monosyllable or final syllable, as in ill, (i); in the penult or 

antiponult, like u in up, when circumflexed, like ee \afeet, (e). 
Aa. In Danish, sounds like o in ope, (o). 
Ae. In Danish and German, like a in ale, (a). 
In Dutch and Flemish, like a in arm, (o,). 
Ai. In French and Greek, like a in ale, (a). 

In German, Spanish and Italian, like i in ice, (J). 
Au. In French, like o in ope, (o). 

In German, Italian and Spanish, like ow in owl, ($). 
Ei. In French, sounds like a in /ate, (a). 
In German, like in ice, (j). 
In Spanish, ti and ey are pronounced a-e. 
In Greek, like ee in tee, (e). 
Eu. In French, is the same as u, ($). 

In German, it is sounded like oi in oil, (er). 
/a. In French, is pronounced like ia in medial, (i-a). 

It. In Danish, Dutch, Flemish, French and German, sounds liko ee in set, (e). 
(>. In Danish, Gorman and Hungarian, has no English equivalent; the sound, 
however, approaches very near the phonetic e. 
In Dutch and Flemish, it sounds like oo in food, (<n). 
Oi. In French, is nearly like wa in was, (wq). 

In Greek, liko ee in eel, (e). 
Oo. In Dutch, is like o in ope, (o). 
Ou. In French, is like oo in fool, (CD). 

Ua, ue, vi, vo in French, and ue in Gorman, are like the French v, (e). 
Ui, or vy in Dutch, sound like oi in oil, (er). 
Ao. In Portugese, are pronounced almost awng, (sn.) 

tSff" Nearly all of the letters in French are silent in different positions. 



INTRODUCTION: ix 

Most of the consonants are sounded as in English; tho following are exceptions: 
JB. In German, at the beginning of words as in English, but at the end of a 

word it is pronounced like p. 

In Greek it is sounded as . 

In Spanish, between two vowels, it is sounded like v modified by w. 
0. In French, with a cedilla, 5, always has the sound of *. 

In German, before e, i and y, like ts. 

In Hungarian c is not used except in connection with some other consonant. 

In Italian, c and cc, before a, o and u, are sounded as k; before e, i and y 
as ch, or tsh, (c,); cc and all double letters, more strongly than single- 
c, followed by e or i, or i and another vowel, has the sound of ch. 

In Spanish, before e and i, as th in thin, (t). 
Ch. In French and Portugese, like sh in shall, (J). 

In German, like a strongly aspirated A. 

In Italian, before e and i, like Tc. 
Cs. In Hungarian, is sounded like ch in cheap, (<j). 
Cfe. In Hungarian, like ts; in Polish like ch, (c,). 
D. In Danish and Spanish, between two vowels, or at tho end of a syllable 

following a vowel, is sounded like th in this, (d). 
G. In Danish, at the end of a word, has the sound of h. 

In Dutch, like a strongly aspirated h. 

In German, except at the beginning of words, when it is always heard as 
in go, (g), it generally has the same sound as in Dutch. 

In Spanish, before e and i, the same. 

In French, before e, i and y, like zh, or s in measure, (5). 
H. In German, is only pronounced when it begins a word. 

In Italian it is never sounded. 

In Portugese it is silent except when following I or n, when it becomes y. 
J. In French and Portugese, is like zh, (3). 

In Hungarian, like ee. 

In Spanish like strongly aspirated h. 

In the other languages like consonant y. 
Kj. In Swedish is sounded as ch in English. 
L. When it ends a word in French, preceded by i, it takes the sound of y; or 

when II follows i in any position, the last I becomes y. 

The same in Spanish. 

N. In Spanish, or in Polish with an accent (ri ), is sounded as y,(consonant). 
Q, and qu, in French and Portugese, are sounded as k. 

In Spanish, qu, before e and i is sounded as k, unless it bo marked with a 

diaeresis, in which case it is kw. 
K. In Danish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portugese, and 

Spanish, has a stronger trill than in English. 
S. lu French, between two vowels, has the sound of . 

In German, at the beginning of a word or between two vowels, it is like 2. 

In Hungarian, like sh, (J). 

la Polish, with an accent, (if ) like sy (consonant.) 



x INTRODUCTION. 

AV. In Italian, before e and f, is like A, (J ). 
ScA. In German, is like */t, ( J). 
&. In Hungarian, is like . 

In Polish, like <&, (J). 
!A. In German, is pronounced like t. 
Tt, and ty in Hungarian, are like ck in English, (q). 

F. In German, except when betwen two vowels, has the sound of English f. 
IF. In Danish, Dutch and German, is sounded very nearly like English 9, 

except that the upper teeth should not touch the lower lip. 
X. In French, sometimes has the sound of or z. 

In Portugese, like sk, (/). 

In Spanish, like the strongly aspirated A. 
Z. In German, is sounded as t-s. 

In Polish, likezA, (5). 

In Italian, like <h. 
Z. In Hungarian, is like zk, (3). 
Zz, In Italian, is like is. 

ACCENT. The French language cannot be said to have any accent, yet there 
is seemingly a stress of the voice on the last syllable in a word, and when any 
accent has been given in this work, it is on the last syllable. Great care should 
be taken, however, in not making so great a difference as in English, but to pro- 
nounce each syllable with such a force as will let each glide smoothly into that 
which follows it. 

No rule can be given for the accent of the German words. And the same 
may be said of the Hungarian, yet with this difference, while the German 
names have a distinct accent, the Hungarian are distinguished by quantity. 
In Italian, Spanish and Portugese, words ending in v, vowel are accented on the 
penult; Spanish words ending in a consonant are accented on the last syllable. 
Polish words or names of more than one syllable are always accented on the 
penult. Russian words are always accented on the last syllable. Welsh words 
are always accented either on the penult or the last syllable. 



Of course, in the preparation of a work of this kind at the present day, there 
can be but little originality, and we have to acknowledge our indebtedness to 
most of the Gazetteers that have heretofore been published, not having relied 
exclusively upon any one. 

The compiler also acknowledges valuable aid received from Mr. William 
Henry Smith, especially in the preparation of the list of Personal Names, to 
obtain the pronunciation of which was often attended with considerable inves- 
tigation and trouble. 

Conscious that there may bo some blunders and inaccuracies in the pages 
thus prepared, for we have found mnny such in the most carefully compiled 
books we have consulted, we commend our labors to the leniency of those who 
may seek to be benefited by them, with the request that they will assist us in 
making them more perfect, by forwarding to too publishers a note of such 
errors as they may discover. 



CONTRACTIONS EMPLOYED IN THIS WORK. 

As a general thing the contractions will suggest the reading intended. The 
populations of towns, cities and islands, are represented by figures and fractions 
that give the number of thousands; thus, 5% immediately following any such 
name is to be read 5,500; but if a fraction only, then the population is only that 
portion of a thousand. In the sentence, "I, c&n and t Switz., 7/^," and similar 
ones, the figures apply only to the place last mentioned.

The rapidity with which population 
increases in the United States is re- 
markable: at the rate of increase for 
the preceding ten years, up to 1850, 
the present population would be ( 1856 ) 
28,753,<i62. The number of persons to 
the square mile in the non-slavehold- 
ing states were 21.91; slaveholding, 
11.35. 

The educational system is unequal- 



led by that of any country (excepting 
Prussia) in the world. The number of 
public and private schools, colleges and 
academies, is 87,162; of students in 
attendance 4,089,597, and the propor- 
tion at school is 1 to 4.9, not including 
slaves, and greater than that of any 
other country. The ratio of those over 
twenty years of age unable to read or 
write is 1 in 40 in the non-slaveholding 
states, and 1 in 12 in the slaveholding 
states. In the New England states, 
1 in 400. The number of papers pub- 
lished, 2,528; while other publications, 
such as books, pamphlets, etc., exceed, 
probably, all other countries together, 

American ships are found on every 
sea, and in its ports the productions of 
every clime are received. There en- 
tered from foreign ports, in 1854, 19,- 
103 vessels, with a tonnage of 5,884,- 
339 tons; cleared, in the same period, 
19,073, with a tonnage of 6,019,194; 
value of imports, $304,562,384; exports, 
$278.241,064.

PERSONAL NAMES. 



INTRODUCTION. 



SURNAMES, like Steam Engines, Railroads, and Telegraphs, seem to be of 
modern origin, the expanse of mind and a rapidly advancing cirilization having 
created the necessity for a definite distinction between the actors in the drama 
of life. However this may be, the invention seems, to the mass of mankind, to 
be more perplexing than those mentioned in this connection; but this difficulty 
is not, let it be borne in mind, in the names vocally expressed, but in their 
symbolical representation. Following out the tendencies of a wretchedly im- 
perfect orthography, the good fathers dressed themselves [i. e., their names,] in 
ill-arranged costumes, which, after the established manner of things temporal, 
fell to their children, who have since continued to hand them down from gen- 
eration to generation, with but slight modifications. 

If it be true that, " Sine nomine hotno non est,"* then should the clothing of 
the name be appropriate an indication to the eye of what the thing is itself. 
But alas ! such is not the case, and in view of the fact, which we cannot look 
to be changed at present, in any way whatever, we have endeavored, in the 
pages that follow, to overcome this difficulty to some extent to place it in the 
power of the reader to call people by their right names. We do not claim for it 
correctness in every particular, for the many difficulties in the way rendered 
this impossible at first, but we feel confident that the reader of general history, 
and the student in all the departments of science and literature, will find this 
list of PERSONAL NAMES an invaluable companion. And, furthermore, to those 
engaged in commercial, mechanical, or agricultural pursuits, who generally givo 
their spare time each day to the reading of their "paper," this will be found of 
great use in rendering familiar what they read. The constant intercommuni- 
cation between the civilized nations of the earth, the numerous travelers fol- 
lowing the various directions of the compass, at the present time, render such 
a work highly important. There are biographical dictionaries, it is true, but 
while the names given are barely readable to the sarant, they are unapproach- 
able barriers in the way of the general reader. Surely this class, as well as 

* Without a name man is nothing. 

(128) 



PERSONAL NAMES. 129 

all others who are in the habit of reading, will feel grateful for the appearance 
of this little work, and all other attempts to make intelligible words clothed 
in a strange orthography. If every Dutchman one meets has not a namo so 
long as Hans Inkvenankodsdorspanckinkadrachdem, or every father of the 
Church so modest a title as thatof "St. Colhn-ap-Gyunawg-ap-Clyndawg-cp- 
O/wrda-ap-Caradoc-Freichfraa-ap-Llynn-Merim-ap-Enion-Yrth-ap-Cunedda- 
Wltdig,"* still there are many less imposing, of Anglo-Saxon as well as of for- 
eign races, quite unpronouneable without assistance, to dress these in pho- 
notypy renders them intelligible. 

This, as we believe, is the first attempt to give the pronunciation of modern 
names, and in the absence of such a work of reference the task has been labo- 
rious. But no pains have been spared in procuring the correct pronuncia- 
tion of every name as far as possible, not only as instanced, but by reference to 
geographical names, poetry, and to works in every department of science and 
Belles-lettres. For instance, the name of a distinguished Senator from Texas, 
(Houston,) is pronounced by some public speakers, Hss-toc, by others, Hdbs-ton; 
now the object to be obtained was to find out how the gentleman pronounced 
it himself, which was done, and was found to be as last given. It would have 
been gratifying to the publishers to have been able to give a more ex- 
tended notice of the works of the great minds that have passed away, together 
with those actively engaged at the present time, to have chatted column after 
column away about the SHAKESPEARES, NEWTOXS and GODWINS, the GCETHES, 
KAXTS and SCHILLEES. the LA PLACES and FRANKLINS of the past, the HUM- 
BOLDTS, AEAGOS and AGASSIZ, of the present, but this would have alone re- 
quired a massive volume, and would have defeated the object of the publishers, 
which was- to make a convenient book of reference for every class of persons. 

In conclusion, we invoke an honest criticism of our labors, hoping that such 
errors as are noted will be forwarded in time to make the requisite corrections 
in the second edition. "W. n. S. 



* The dedication of the Church of Llangollen in Wales. [Vide Recreative 
Review, vol. ii. p. 189, Eng.] It appears from the following laughable des- 
cription of cheese, designed to ridicule this system of nomenclature, that the 
surnominal adjunct, ap, [meaning of, or from, by descent,] was used in Wales 
until recently: 

"Adam's own cousin-german by its birth, 
Ap-Curds-ap-Milk-ap-Cow-ap-Grass-ap-Earth!" 

English Surnames, vol. i. p. 18. 



EXPLANATION OF ABBREVIATIONS. 

The usual Geographical abbreviations are employed, as explained in the In- 
troduction to the Geographical Names ^ also, the ordinary abbreviations of 
Christian names. In order to economize space, an abridged style of expression 
has been adopted, which when once understood is sufficiently expressive for a 
book of reference. Thus: "Aaron, eld, br Moses," elder brother of Mottt ; 
"b. A. M.," born year of the world ; "B. C.," Imfvre Ghrint. The figures at 
the close of each paragraph, thus : " 1512 1571," are to be read, " born 1512 
died 1571 ;" or if ' k." precede the last figures, read "killed 1571 ;" "g." "guil- 
lotined," &c. See "Ainmuller," "1807 ," means, born 1807, but not dead, 01 
if so it is not known ; "Allen," " 1789," means, the birth is not known, but 
died in 1789. [Those who own the book, when they hear of the death of anj 
individual mentioned in it, should enter the time of his decease opposite the 
name.]

PHONOGRAPHY has been denned as a philosophical method 
of writing the English language, with an alphabet composed 
of the simplest geometrical signs, which accurately represent 
the sounds of spoken words. It may be written six times as 
fast as the ordinary longhand, and is equally legible. Aside 
from the scientific propriety of the system, as made manifest 
in the Introduction which follows, the following practical 
advantages are worthy of consideration: 

1. To professors of scientific and literary institutions to 
gentlemen of the bench or the bar to legislators in the halls 
of representation to ministers of religion to lecturers on 
the various arts and sciences it presents the most invalu- 
able aid, in enabling them to arrange, condense, and fix their 
thoughts, facts, arguments and proofs, in the briefest period 
of time and the shortest possible space, presenting, in the 
condensed schedule of a small page, a full and complete syn- 
opsis of their most elaborate speeches, orations, or discourses. 

2. By its aid, the advocates in the courts of justice or the 
halls of trial, will be enabled to write, with ease and accu- 
racy, either the full depositions of important witnesses, or the 
facts, proofs, evidences, and arguments of legal opponents, 
and thus be in a position, not only to meet them with readi- 
ness and strength, but eventually to thoroughly overthrow 
and refute them. 

3. The student in the halls of science can transcribe with 
faithfulness, and preserve in the smallest compass, the valu- 
able lessons of professors, and thus preserve, for the medita- 
tion of his leisure hours, a connected wlwle, instead of broken, 
detached, and uncertain fragments, that often serve to con- 
fuse, bewilder, or perplex. 

4. Merchants, and clerks of mercantile houses, to whom 
tints and space are really a desideratum, will find Phonography 
a n.ost invaluable auxiliary; as the ease with which it can

be learned and acquired, and the facility and readiness with 
which it can be written and read, will enable them to tran- 
scribe their accounts, to note their memoranda, to post up 
their bills, and even to conduct their correspondence, in less 
than one-fifth of the ordinary time, and in a considerable re- 
duction of the ordinary space; and as " time is money," it 
presents to them indeed a most invaluable gain. 

5. To the author, editor, or general writer to the orator, 
legislator, or minister how invaluable must it be, when they 
reflect how many of their most brilliant thoughts and most 
glowing conceptions, how many of the most sparkling gems 
of their imaginations and the most radiant pearls of their 
thoughts, that in moments of genius and enthusiasm flash 
like electric sparks from the mind, are forever lost for the 
want of some Daguerrean process, like the one we present, 
to catch and transfix them on the wing, recording them on 
the glowing page in all the freshness, vigor, and brilliancy of 
their first conception, as rapidly as they are presented to the 
mind! and for the lack of which, alas! like the dazzling flash 
of the evanescent meteor, they fade and expire as rapidly as 
they are kindled, and leave but the indistinct memory of their 
trace behind. 

G. A practical acquaintance with this art is highly favor- 
able to the improvement of the mind, invigorating all its fac- 
ulties, and drawing forth all its resources. The close atten- 
tion requisite in following the voice of the speaker (in report- 
ing) induces habits of patience, perseverance and watchful- 
ness, which will gradually extend, till they form habits that 
will be found useful through life. The close attention to the 
words and thoughts of the speaker which is necessary in 
writing them down, will naturally have a tendency to endue 
the mind with quickness of apprehension and distinctness of 
perception, whereby the judgment will be strengthened and 
the taste refined. 

7. The memory is also improved by the practice of Pho- 
nography. The necessity for the writer to retain in his 



V1U ADVANTAGES OP PHONOGRAPHY. 

mind the last sentence of the speaker, while he is attending 
at the same time to what follows, and also to penning down 
his words, must be highly beneficial to that faculty, which is 
more than any other improved by exercise. It draws out 
anJ improves all the faculties of the mind. 

"Phonography," says Messrs. FOWLERS & WELLS, "we re- 
gard as one of the most important inventions of the age, and 
one which should be open to every person desirous of being 
considered educated. As a system of reporting, general cor- 
respondence, and memoranda, it is unparalleled in usefulness. 
In chirography, it is what the telegraphs are in agencies for 
transmitting thought. We employ three reporters, one in 
our office and two who travel with lecturers from our house. 
In ten minutes we can dictate an article for publication which 
we could not compose and write in two hours; besides it con- 
tains more spirit and freshness than if labored through at the 
slow pace of ordinary composition. Every scholar should by 
all means learn it." 

Professor HART, Principal of the Philadelphia High School, 
says: " Phonography has been introduced into this institu- 
tion two years and a half, and has been learned by about 
four hundred. Two hundred are studying it now. It is one 
of the regular branches of the course, being attended to three 
times a week during the whole of the first year. Had I not 
supposed it to be of much practical value, I should not have 
urged its introduction, a measure which I have seen no occa- 
sion to regret. Such of ourstudenls as have made Phono- 
graphic Reporting a profession, have got along in life faster, 
by all odds, than those in any other kind of business, and 
that without the possession of any special brilliancy of tal- 
ents. Some of them, not yet turned twenty, are now mak- 
ing more money by Phonographic Reporting than the Princi- 
pal of the High School, after having given himself for more 
than twenty years to his profession." 

Said the Hon. Thomas Benton: " Had this art been known 
forty years ago, it would have saved me twenty years of 
hard labor." 

" It is my humble opinion that it will eventually supersede 
the present system of writing, as the steam carriage train 
supersedes the old eight inch wheeled wagon." Rev. D unbar. 

Such are the tendencies of the art this book is designed to 
unfold.

TEN years' experience in the Phonographic art, as Teacher and Re- 
porter, find for nearly the same period occupied, more or less, in preparing 
books for the press, give the author of the AMERICAN MANUAL or 
PHOXOQRAPHT the fullest assurance in presenting this work to the 
public. Since its first publication, it has undergone careful revision, and 
now appears in an entirely new dress, in every way adapted to the wants 
of the teacher and private learner. It differs from any other work pub- 
lished, in the following particulars: 

1. The explanatory matter is in large, clear type. 

2. The Phonographic Exercises are engraved in a bold, distinct style, 
that they may be as easily read by candlelight as daylight. 

3. The Reading and Writing Exercises are introduced just where the 
text requires them, whether it be on the same page or the opposite one. 

4. The Exercises to bo written are printed in phonetic spelling, which, 
being fully explained, enables the learner to analyze accurately, and 
vocalize his writing correctly two essentials to rapid progress and the 
attainment of a good style. 

5. Each lesson is closed with a review in the form of questions, which, 
as in all other text books on science, proves of great service to both learner 
and teacher. 

6. It contains more extensive lists of Contracted Words, and more 
Phraseography than any other work. 

7. Beside the above characteristic features, the AMERICAN MANUAL 
possesses all the late improvements in Phonography, including the adapta- 
tion of the art to the writing of foreign languages. 

8. The AMERICAN MANUAL is one-fourth larger than works of the kind 
usually are, more space being devoted to an exposition of the philosophy 
of the system, fur the purpose of satisfying the studont in regard to the 
necessity of the various contraction-', etc. It is printed on the very best 
of paper, and is substantially and elegantly bound.

THE SPELLING REFORM Instituted to make universal education possi- 
ble, by rendering the arts of Reading and Writing pleasant and easy to acquire. 
PHOXOTVPY is a rational system of spelling words as they are pronounced, 
by employing an enlarged alphabet containing a separate letter for each sound, 
by which means the drudgery of learning to spell ia entirely dispensed with, 
and learning to read is accomplished in one-fourth of the time required in the 
old way. PHONOGRAPHY is a truly philosophical method of writing tlw 
English Language, by an alphabet composed of the simplest geometrical signs, 
which accurately represent the sounds of spoken words. It may be written 
Bix times as fast as ordinary longhand, and is equally legible, and such is the 
simplicity of the art that its principles may be easily mastered even without th 
aid of a teacher. 



The first price is that charged, at the counter: the second inclvdet the
